The food was DELICIOUS! The service was great and I recommend sitting outside. The patio dining scene really helped make a perfect dining experience......and I didn't even get a chance to check out the bar. I also recommend to order the entire crab if you're going to eat here; the steamed it perfectly.
My favorite place to get crab on the island! My family goes at least once a month. Their seasonings are amazing and the portions are generous. Their garlic noodles used to be so good but they recently changed the noodle to angel hair pasta and their not as great. I still enjoy them though so no biggie. I take all visiting friends and family members to this restaurant whenever I get the opportunity and highly recommend it to any and everyone.
Ask to be seated outside! This place was recommended to us as a great place to bring our out-of-town guests, so we were surprised to see the cramped and plain dining room. The hostess said she had a spot for us outside, and it was the most beautiful setting! There's a pretty lagoon surrounded by gardens and shady trees, and the big dining area for the adjoining restaurant The Willows is over the water. Bottom line: if you care about atmosphere, ask to be seated outside.
We all thought the food was great. I'm from Louisiana and lemme tell ya dawlin dem skrimps was gooo-ood! Ooo-wee! ;)
I got the half order of spicy shrimp with garlic butter and Cajun mixed, plus cornbread. It was so good and plenty food. The kids liked the kids meals, and I'd say that was a successful dinner. Would go again.
Oh, we were confused by parking, but I think you can park in the lot that says "Parking for the Willows".
Great King Crab. We arrived without reservations and saw a bunch of empty tables. We were told it would be a 20 min wait. At first we thought we were in a Seinfeld episode because we waited for over 20 minutes and the tables in front were empty. We were then pleasantly seated at a table that adjoins The Willows. It was much better atmosphere than the eating area you see from the entrance. Waitress from Jersey was great. The King Crab was good, but in hindsight I would get it with just garlic butter mild. I got caught up in the Cajun experience and ordered the Karai flavor. It overwhelmed the natural taste of the King Crab. The Karai flavor was good on the shrimp. Everything was cooked well and tastes fresh. Key lime dessert was great. It's a nice place to eat and relax without feeling rushed or pushed out the door.
My mouth is still watering thinking about the delicious food here! Try the Karai sauce on your crab and shrimp, your mouth will thank you! Such a fantastic meal, clean space, COVID-safe, and friendly attentive staff! Will be back for SURE!
Great experience. Staff was super nice and attentive. Food was really good. Sleeper pick was fried chicken skins. Miso clams and Karai Combo was very filling.
The seasoning is good but too good. I became addicted to butter based seasonings after trying it once here. Lost my wife, kids, and a lucrative career. All over butter. Be careful, you might think you can have it once and be okay but if you’re anything like me, you know that’s just a lie to tell yourself.
Their crab are so good you gonna lick your fingers and the hard cover of the crab. Just give a try, you gonna enjoy it. They have an offer of 50% discount for the second crab of same or lower value, try different flavors with this offer.
This place was a little bit away from Waikiki Beach but not that far maybe 20 minutes walk. I wanted to go because I wanted to experience something more local unless mainstream like everything else on the Waikiki Beach strip. it was exactly what I was looking for absolutely epic food and more of a local experience. Highly recommend this place and I will definitely go back next time I am in Honolulu.
Very clean, super nice waiter. Foodportions a bit too small and blend. Needed to order sides to get a feeling of semi full.
Absolutely Delicious! The staff was personable with lots of Aloha. I live here and it's the best meal I've had only had 2 great dishes and this ranks #1. Sit outside the Botanical Garden is beautiful. What a jewel in my own backyard. I can walk here and will atleast once a week for dinner. The music was even enjoyable. Prices is affordable.
